The U.S. Department of Labor encourages affirmative actions to employ covered veterans and to advance covered veterans in employment.
Federal contractors and subcontractors with a contract in the amount of $150,000 or more with any department of the U.S. government must report on their affirmative action initiatives to employ veterans. Documentation of employment of veterans is communicated to the Department of Labor through a VETS-4212 filing. Information in the filing is reported in summary nature by veteran status, job category, hiring location, and new hire status.
This filing is completed online through the Department of Labor website. The VETS-4212 filing site is now open and closes September 30, 2020. To access the filing site, go to https://vets4212.dol.gov/vets4212.
